Shades of Grey: Con Job

Some situations are viewed in black and white; right and wrong. Yet, many people think situations also have a grey area where solutions are not so easily discerned. This is about the choices people make, and the thought process they go through to arrive at decisions.

Consider: Submitted for Discussion

You go with your family to a local festival. You’re walking along the vendors, with different members of your family picking out little local items to buy.

Later, as you are all walking to the car, you’re approached by a person who says he is selling raffle tickets for a local charity. You recognize the charity name, and know that there was no raffle in their festival booth. You think the person is running a con.

Do you think that you would let him know that you had figured out he was a fraud? Or would you just get your family in the car and get out of there? Do you think that you would report him to the police at the event, or just head on home?
